Just a list of the changes for the 2012 A1 spec... LED rear number plate lighting too, maybe this could be a retrofit! :cool:

2012 Audi A1 Model Changes
Audi has announced the new model changes for the 2012 Audi A1.

Effective from May this year, the MY12 Audi A1 will receive a number of alternations including an emissions reduction for the A1 1.6 TDI engine, the introduction of new paint colours and several new options across the range.

Lower CO2 Emissions:
In line with current competitor action and Euro 5 standards, the C02 emissions on A1 1.6 TDI engines have been reduced to just 99g/km. The changes allow qualifying A1 models to apply for the 100% Greener Vehicle Discount, potentially saving London drivers up to £2,500 per year* on the London Congestion Charge.

New Paint Colours:
A number of new paint colours are now available on the 2012 Audi A1 including a new metallic in Glacier White. Audi has also lifted some of the restrictions on colour combinations with roof contrast line, giving customers more choice for personalisation. The Amalfi white roof contrast line will now be available with Scuba Blue, Shiraz Red, Sphere Blue or Teak Brown metallic, Cumulus Blue in gloss or Phantom Black & Misano Red in pearl effect.

New Features & Options:
A number of new options will be available on the MY12 A1 including a mobile telephone preparation system with online services priced from £720. Audi has also announced that all new 2012 A1 models will receive new LEDs to light the rear licence plate.

Orders for the 2012 Audi A1 start from next week.

Sounds good, I am not bothered that Audi has introduced these changes.

The number plate lights shouldn't be that difficult to swap out, so that'll be a decent retrofit :)

I have Just ordered my s-line 1.6tdi. I have requested delivery in september. Does anyone know if the changes (mainly the lower co2) is applied to cars built after may or does it have to be ordered? Is the price structure of the a1 changing?
